Silly America on TV!

Catch Silly America on TV! WILL-TV, the public television station in Champaign, IL contacted me about using some photos that I posted last February when I spent the month featuring Abraham Lincoln roadside attractions!

The episode of Prairie Fire that they aired on Thursday, March 26, 2009 profiled photographer David Wiegers, who is traveling the U.S. to take photos of Lincoln artwork, and the photos of Lincoln’s Tomb and the World’s Tallest Lincoln statue are mine! (I was just happy they didn’t use the one of me licking a watermelon!)
